We are in Mazatlan Mexico this week. Yesterday we took the bus into town, 10 pesos or just under $1 per person. Not sure where we wanted to get off, we got off at the market, mercado.
Mazatlan has twenty miles of ocean stocked full with lots of fresh seafood ready for catching, especially shrimp and oysters.
We wanted to see the shrimp ladies or changueras. We lucked out and happened to turn down Aquiles Serdán and saw the ladies lining the street under colourful umbrellas. Plastic tubs are filled with brown shrimp, blue shrimp, white shrimp, fresh water, deep-ocean and farmed shrimp piled high upon floating ice. We didn't spend a long time there yesterday, but will be making a longer visit which will include lunch during the week and I'll provide an update next week.
I'm looking forward to more on your market visit.ReplyDelete
